Together with Uri and his wife, Francine, were their daughter, Sarit; her husband, Shai Amrani; and their children: four-year-old Zoar, two-year-old Ziv, and Raz, just three months old. Sarit wanted to go back to their home in Nokdim, in the Judean desert. Francine convinced them to spend another night in Hebron because it would be safer for them to make the drive in the daylight. They left at dawn the next day. A little while later, Uri received a telephone call from Shai’s mother. She had heard on the radio that there had been a terrorist attack on the road to Nokdim.
But the stories of these victims prove otherwise. And still, the Israelis have shown that they love life more than they fear death. The buses circulate even if they leave burned carcasses here and there, and the stops are always crowded. The supermarkets stay open. Every time a bomb explodes, the signs of the blast are quickly removed; windows are repaired; bullet holes are patched. The places that were blown up reopen after two days. The terrorists of the “road without glory,” as the Jew and French Resistance member Bernard Fall called it, have killed hundreds of teachers and students, but the schools have never closed.
They are stories of courage, desperation, faith, of defending hearth and home through “honorable warfare” in the only army that permits disobeying an inhumane order. This is the epic of a people that has suffered all of the worst injustices of the world, and is reborn time and again thanks to its moral strength. One of the most excruciating scenes in Shoah, Claude Lanzmann’s masterpiece, took place in the Polish shtetl of Grabow. In late December of 1941, all of the Jews there were asphyxiated in the Chelmno gas vans, and the Poles of the village took possession of their homes.
